Queenie’s Castle

Queenie’s Castle – 1970

The series was actually set in Leeds and made by YORKSHIRE TV for the ITV network, and featured the ex blonde sex goddess Diana Dors. In the 1970s Diana’s private life was even more exciting than her scented life. She was married to East end vilan Alan Lake, who was a friend of the notorious Kray brothers. Diana died in 1984, but will all ways be remembered as one of the British early superstars.

70’s Televison

What an amazing piece of kit our telly was. Can you imagine having to change channel by turning a knob to tune in BBC2 and forever getting up to realign the aerial and contrast, and the only way to stop the picture from rolling was to give the set a good thump? Do you remember that we only have three channels to watch? Thinking about it, the conversation was better at school next day as everyone seemed to be watching the same thing unlike nowadays where we have too much choice. Aye, the quality of programmes seem to have dwindled when you think back to what we had in our days.
